    I hate to tell you guys this, but those guys have a pretty bad survival record in out tanks. Next time get a feather duster, they do much better and look exactly the same.

    Little fish I think I have a habit of picking difficult inverts. Lol how come they have a low survival rate? I read bc they need to be fed. But I have a flame scallop so I feed a lot already.

    "...The aquarium for the Hard Tube Coco Worm should be well-established and contain a rock and gravel substrate. The Hard Tube Coco Worm requires calcium and the proper alkalinity to grow. It is extremely intolerant of poor water quality and copper-based medications.
    In the aquarium it is difficult to maintain, and will need supplements of phytoplankton and liquid organic foods..."

    Ugh, why do all the cool looking things have to be so difficult?

    He's beautiful! Mine was out just like yours yesterday each day he comes out more and more. Mine has two heads also. Now the hermits will crawl on his tube and the snails will bump him and he won't suck himself in. He must feel pretty comfortable in my tank. I thought it would take a couple weeks. Guess not :)

    I have had one of mine for about 6 months the others about 1 month, aside from my urchin trying to munch on them they are super easy.

    I feed my tank microfore plankton about once a month by injecting a tiny bit right into my blowers and turning off the skimmer/filter for about 15 minutes. I guess it works no one is dead yet. :D
